My new favorite foundation!!
About Me Beauty Expert
This is my new favorite thing I can not go without. I have tried a LOT of foundations in my time including some very high end items. While there were others I liked I always struggled with the fact these products just weren't awesome for my skin at the end of the day. This foundation gives the best of both words. I don't feel guilty using it daily and in fact does beautiful things for the skin. It isn't cakey and feels super light weight. I have acne prone skin and the regular strength acne kit then this during the day and and the resist retinol product at night since you know....wrinkles AND acne = good times. I am a fan and very much recommend, it didn't break me out at all while giving an awesome finish!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Beauty Conscious
It's wonderfully lightweight. It makes the texture of my skin look so much younger. Smoothing. I still have to use concealer on discolorations like healing acne. I found it doesn't apply best with fingers and it dispenses way to much. However it's beautiful applied with a damp makeup sponge. Like air-brushed. Though it's hard to get over wasting product, by the pump and damp sponge, I understand that keeping it airtight keeps the ingredients at their best and keeps the make-up from breaking down. The lightest color was too light so I gave to daughter and she likes it too. Ordered the next color up and it still washes me out a bit so I use a bit of bronzer. I came to look at the next color up only to discover there's hardly anything left! I hope they make more.

Foundation that feels like skincare!!!!
from Leitchfield, KY
Comments about Resist Anti-Aging Foundation - Level 1 Fair/Light - 1 oz:
I didn't like this foundation until I used it several times, then I began to love it. It feels so nice and wears beautifully, nourishing my skin throughout the day instead of it feeling dirty or oily. It is not full coverage, but is buildable and natural looking. It doesn't settle into my fine lines around my face. I wear the lightest shade and it is neutral/yellow based. My skin has some redness and is not too oily or dry. I reach for this foundation daily!
Perfect shade match, but not a fan
By MN Mom
Loved the shade - perfect tint for my hard-to-match skin tone. I was initially excited about the match, but after using this product for a month, I'm disappointed to see that it doesn't blend well. It seems to just swipe away from the surface, and sits in pores and creases - the overall effect is very aging - I wish I could find this same shade in a product that has better blend/coverage/staying power.

Sits in pores
from Liberty Lake, WA
About Me Natural Style
This foundation is very sheer. It would look like I didn't put anything on at all, except that it sits in my pores and is very difficult to get out. It does not layer well, and feels and looks awful.I'm 35 years old, with little to no sun damage. I have light, combination skin with pinky-yellow undertones.

Love the color, but not the texture
By snow pea
from Toulouse, LA
First the good: great color selection for pale skin! I had to discontinue my use of the Barely There TM because the lightest color is just too dark for my pale skin (for many others too, please listen to us PC and make a lighter shade!). I was very happy to find that the Level 1 in this foundation matches my skin perfectly. *If* this is blended in nicely, then it has a very nice natural look. However that's a big *if*. I have teeny tiny pores, never noticed them before in my life - until I used this foundation. It settles right into them and highlights them. And if you have any bit of dryness of flakiness, this foundation will call attention to it like a neon sign. If blended in well and if your skin is in perfect condition, you can get beyond these things, but it's just a pain to blend. Quite thick and tacky. Also likes to hang on to any facial hair you have. Again I have very little, and what I do have is very fair and fine, but this foundation finds it and highlights. It's just too much work. I used the whole bottle, but for the most part I would blend it with my moisturizer to make my own TM and make for easier blending. The absolute PERFECT product would be one with the texture of the Barely There tint and the color of theisLevel 1 Resist foundation. PLEASE PC make this happen for us pale ladies who just want a good quality easy to apply face makeup! Sorry to say none of the PC products currently qualify as both.

Be careful about choosing the right shade!
By Shiny Girl
from San Jose, CA
I should have paid attention to previous reviews and chosen a darker shade I usually choose. I am shade light in most foundations. I have freckles and I live in CA, so I have golden undertone or maybe light tan ( I don't tan intentionally; I just spend a lot of time outside). So, I chose shade 2- Light, and it was too light for me. It takes a little effort to blend in so that my face doesn't look whitened, but after applying a bronzer, I can even out the tone. I decided not to return the product because I really like the texture, pigmentation, and the way it blends in. It looks very natural. I stay shine free for the first 2 hours after applying, but then I need to blot the oil. Actually I have to do this with every foundation. I will definitely reorder this product in a darker shade 3.

I really wanted to love this product

Comments about Resist Anti-Aging Foundation - Level 0 Porcelain - 1 oz:
I really wanted to like this product but it would not blend, it accentuated my pores and dry patches and felt heavy. Also, I'm not sure what aspect of the foundation did it, but it irritated by under-eye area. That said, I love a lot of paulas choice products. I've been shopping exclusively skin care on this site for about two years and will continue too.
